and degradation of life in syria. you have spoken about this passionately. it's getting worse and worse. 400,000 refugees. it's going across the borders of turkey jordan, israel. what's happening now. >> there was an agreement reached by the syrian opposition to form this new national council led by a former islamist imam from syria. whether he can hold this together remains to be seen. this is a legitment government. he needs arms. he needs no fly zones. unless he gets these. they have the means to pummel the people of syria. >> eliot: is now to step in to provide arms. >> i take the pronoun we and apply it to the turks on the one hand and the jordannens on the other. let them have the support that they need, whether from the united states or elsewhere, for them to do what is necessary to create those no fly zones. for the state department to stop acting from mrs. clinton or the u.s. government to stop acting and kicking and screaming and supporting the french. if the french want to do this as the former colonial power the state department should stop them from doing so. >> eliot: why are w

uncertainty with egypt, uncertainty on its border with jordan, civil war in syria, probl problems with hezbollah and lebanon. not to mention iran. there's no port in the storm. this is now the new middle east. >> and richard, doesn't that make syria all the more important, you know, golan heights took mortar fire from syria, israel really doesn't want to get involved. you know, spread itself thin in syria, and i think that's why international action on syria is so important right now. >> it's one of the fault lines in the middle east. i think if you're an israeli, it's not the one at the moment that keeps you up at night the most. >> right. >> i still think the palestinian is the closest. then you've got egypt which is the anchor of israel's security. and i think actually the israelis are most worried about jordan. the israelis are not central to the dynamic in syria. syria which began as a civil war and spread into the proxy has the potential to become a regional war. just when the thought the middle east can get worse, it can. >> what's your assessment of pretty much the fact th
of the entire region. syria, and the disorder spills across the neighborhood. joining us again, and fbi supervisory agent. you see that as late? >> what is happening in syria, you have to look at it from a few different perspectives. first you have the syrian people who want freedom from bashar al-assad's regime. then you have regional conflict that is going on. this is between iran and turkey. turkey is supporting the iranian people and iran is supporting the regime. you also have to look at it on a different level. where you have russia and china also involved on global levels with the syrian conflict. it is becoming a war of shadows and a war of different phones. the problem with that is that syria is a multicultural society. you have the christians and shiites and sunnis so if a civil war took place in syria, with all of these entities fighting with each other, that is still into the entire region. you will see it in lebanon and we will see an indication that the syrian conflict is still into lebanon. also, there is about 20 million involved in the clan and that's that. jenna: this

syria into the mix. israel fired shells into the syrian border after receiving some mortar fire itself in the golan heights. it doesn't have the time or energy to invest in syria, but if things spiral out of control, how much pressure does that also put on israel to act? >> i think the israelis have been pretty clear, including in the last few days, that they have absolutely no interest in getting involved in what's going on in syria. there's so many different reasons for that. first of all, it's an intractable conflict. beyond that, none of the actors involved are pro-israelis. the worst thing they can do is get involved in the conflict and give the regime some kinld of political cover saying we're not just fighting against revolutionaries but against israeli spies and the massad. from israel's perspective they have nuch problems dealing with gaza. the last thing that they need is to add to that plate, and what can be gained by getting involved in syria from the israel's perspective? whoever wins in syria from israel's perspective is the enemy. >> that's right. thanks so much. >> than

nearly 20 months of fierce fighting, there may be a major turning point in the civil war in syria. yes, it is still raging. and the various dysfunctional opposition groups seem to be finally agreeing to unite at least under one umbrella group. so this is what you're used to seeing. there's no uniform there but it is fierce. these are the scenes from syria. government fighting rebel forces through streets that are truly war zones and are a mess. now let's shift to some other pictures where the uniforms become very different. suits. these are opposition leaders. essentially representing those people in the streets and they were meeting over the weekend in the gulf to create what on paper at least is a unified group with the aim of getting rid of bashar al assad. now, if they can do it, it would possibly mean the end of the carnage going on every single day. there are graphic images that we're about to show you. just one example of what goes on every day. they are the opposition saying that more than 35,000 people now killed since the conflict erupted in march of last year. so many of the
